Top 10 of Spring and a Prize Draw

Spring is finally in full swing, and so it is time to give a nod to the season by listing our favorite scents of the moment. Everybody at PST named one perfume they've been enjoying the most in the last months; below, is our collective Top 10 of Spring; please share with us your favorites!

Serge Lutens Santal Blanc. For the early days of spring, when neither the weather nor I can make up our minds, Santal Blanc is just the thing: warm and woody, but also light, clear and surprisingly floral. And if on certain days I smell like a very fine, fresh and expensive pencil, well, all the better for writing foolish springtime notes that I erase and begin again a dozen times before sending.

Christian Dior Diorissimo. It’s such a classic spring fragrance .....hopeful , green, pure and truly the most wondrous of the Lily of the Valley perfumes. My very romantic husband buys it for me and once my son told me that if he ever met a girl who wore it that she would be “the one”. It’s beauty, romance and passion in a bottle and forever springtime in New York, a fine glass of champagne and a stroll through the Cloisters!

Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Cielle - it's like the soft breath of fluffy clouds in a bottle, a beautifully balanced jasmine and mimosa blend that brings out the ethereal qualities of each flower.

Annick Goutal Eau d'Hardrien. No doubt about it. It's just fresh Sicilian lemons, grapefruit, cypress, and ylang ylang in the most perfect combination. This smells fantastic on a woman. I haven't smelled it yet on a man but I bet it would be great.

Hermes Un Jardin Apres la Mousson. I avoided it for a while on its reputation of aquatic melon, but I find that I love it for exactly that quality. The melon is more a refreshing watermelon than a clinging cantaloupe, and is dryly spiced by coriander, cardamom, and pepper that ground it in earthy dignity. The overall effect is ethereally springlike, and I feel right at home with the dragonflies, butterflies and hummingbirds when I wear it.

Abdul Samed Al Qurashi Thaqeel. That the heart of Thaqeel's refined, yet opulent, honeyed inflorescence is distilled from the bowels of a fungus-ravaged tree puts me in awe not only of nature's mysteries, but of (wo)man's ability to find and recognize that beauty can be found in destruction and decay.

Hermes Vanille Galante. What shouldn't have even been a spring fling turned out to be love. The unripe, slightly salty melon, the transparent lily, the almost non-existent vanilla, the pureness and joyful tranquility of a watery accord- my unexpected spring favorite.

Hermes Un Jardin Sur le Nil. The intensely sour, verdant top notes and soft green drydown are very refreshing and energizing. It's my summer staple, but this year, spring gave us a miss and summer's here already!

L'Artisan Fou d'Absinthe is a perennial favorite. It reminds me of my years in Europe and feels so right for New York. It was great in winter and is perfect in spring.

Le Labo Oud 27. Beautifully balances sour, salty and sweet, and (thankfully) has hassle -free availability.

If you would like to participate in a prize draw for a set of 10 samples, one of them Vanille Galante and the other 9 mystery "spring-like" fragrances [my pick! - Marina], say so in your comment. The winner will be announced on Tuesday. The draw is now closed.

Thaqeel sound very interesting..need to smell cielle and VG..
I've been enjoying my sample of champaca absolute(the last drop of which I finished a few days ago.)
I'm ordered diorissimo more than a week back from fragrancenet..It said 'out of stock' almost as soon as I'd ordered-I haven't gotten a shipping notice yet, so am worried..:(.Was looking forward to spring and summer with Diorissimo (Beth- Loved your review- it literally made me feel like being drenched in Diorissimo)

After a long and "heavy" winter here in Vienna I'm all light and citrus now that spring arrived. There is my Jo Malone collection, full of limes and grapefruits, but for me the best citrus ever is Annick G.'s Hadrian and I agree with Kelley : must be gorgeous on a man... Tom, where are you ?
(And if it's not a citrus right now, than it's Kohdo wood with amber...)

I'm loving lighter spring scents at the moment. Diorissimo is perfect for the sunny days, and I'm loving Apres L'ondee and Chamade on the rainier greyer days (of which there are unfortunately many in England....). I'd like to enter the draw too please!

Hi Trish! Yes, SB is one of the subtler Lutens, so it gets overlooked. But I find that many of my subtler, overlooked scents come into their own in the sprintime. I'm wearing the heck out of Les Nez's The Unicorn Spell right now.

Great picks everyone! I find it simply amazing that we have no overlap.

Hi there! I've fallen for LL Oud, too, although it doesn't seem all that "springlike" to me.

For springlike--out of nowhere, I suddenly got a craving for FM Carnal Flower. And I think I'm almost out!

I find that my usual spring scents - Mitsouko, Calycanthus, The Unicorn Spell - are all taking a back-seat to Manoumalia. I love the little dirty bits in the far drydown! Anyone else having that experience?

Hahah, "a very fine, fresh and expensive pencil"! Indeed. I'm with Beth, I wore Diorissimo whilst staying at my folks' in Wales over Easter weekend, and got compliments on the lovely fresh-spring-flowers effect.

More recently I've been wearing L'Heure Bleue. Delicate and tentative, like the English Spring. - Emma

Via Camerelle, by Carthusia.

It's light and cool enough for work, but slowly turns subtly musky toward the end of the day.

I love reading these lists and comparing them to the scents I choose for the season. Although here in California, the seasons are much less pronounced then elsewhere. Wearing different scents helps with the illusion of different seasons.

Gorgeous list! Please enter me into the draw, too! This spring, I'm sticking to Balmain's Ivoire (seriously underrated), Dior's Escale a Portofino and Serge Lutens Bois de Violette for the rainy days, which we've so far had none of in April.

11:21 AM EDT  
Blogger nadine said...

This is a delicious list! I rather like the idea of Fou d'Absinthe in the spring and will have to revisit it. I've been wearing Songes by Annick Goutal for the past few days, getting to know the scent. It certainly is lovely, very romantic and I am enjoying wearing it but it's not quite something I can imagine smelling on my skin regularly.
Yes, please do enter me in your prize draw, very exciting!

Hi Marina et al. I'm really curious about Vanille Galante, so would love to be included in the draw. Thanks!

As to scents of spring for me - spring's been slow in coming up here, but I've been breaking out the spring scents, trying to urge the weather along. In the past week or so, I've worn Juicy Couture (love it), No. 5 Eau Premiere, Cococabana, Premier Figuier, Tommy Girl, and today spritzed on Fig Tea from a sample I have. I also tried Yves Rocher's Rose Absolue - nice scent! Still haven't broken out Le Temps d'Une Fete, but it's supposed to be in the warm this weekend...woo-hoo! Just may have to wear it.
